It was the week that changed everything.
Annie Sutton's life is unraveling when she accepts a week-long assignment as a costume seamstress at Rysdonne Priory, a magical country house in England's wild and beautiful Devon. Although her parents have irreparable problems and the love of her life is on a different continent, Annie holds fast to her own dream of domestic bliss. But complication arises when Annie meets handsome Will St John, just as her long-awaited plans are falling into place. Against the backdrop of a theatrical production and a cast of characters that seem equally dramatic off-stage, Annie discovers that she's been betrayed, and must escape the tangled dilemma she's fashioned for herself.
Heartwarming and richly textured, Summer Theatre takes readers on a personal journey of first love, lost love, and the love that will carry on through a lifetime. Readers of Marcia Willett and Rosamunde Pilcher's shorter novels will enjoy Michele Deppe's perceptive rendering of endearing characters, idyllic settings, and serene storytelling.
